This is a contemptible display of a staggering combination of juvenile humor and misogyny. US Rep Katherine Harris's credibility should not be undermined by her gender or by her physical appearance. The fact that her, um, unfortunate, choice of garb generated headlines at all shows how far our society has to go before female politicians are not equal not only in numbers to their male counterparts, but also in respect. For every snicker this generates, one constituent of hers loses that much respect for his or her US Representative.
